A search is under way to find the descendants of a World War II soldier after a set of three war medals were found in the pocket of a donated jacket at a Brunswick opportunity shop.

The medals were handed into the Brunswick police station by a good Samaritan on Friday after they were found inside the pocket of a black suit jacket, which was donated to the Sydney Road Savers store sometime after Anzac Day

Police said they were keen reunite the medals with their rightful owner and have put out a public appeal for help.

The medals appear to be from World War II, however there is no engraving, which suggests they may either belong to a European soldier or may be replicas of medals awarded to an Australian soldier.

Investigators have released an image of the medals in the hope someone may recognise them.

Anyone with information or who may know the owner of the medals is urged to contact Brunswick Police Station on 8378 6000.
